About My Library

Most of the books listed here I own and I have read all of them. It is my plan to review them as I re-read them or add to my collection.

Ratings: 5 stars = the very best, 4 = very good book, 3 = decent read, 2 = disappointing, 1 = awful, just awful.

I mostly read science fiction/fantasy for fun. I am interested in a number of textile crafts and have accumulated a quantity of books on these topics. I also read history, anthropology and astronomy books but rarely keep them in my collection.
